En ocasión de reconstruir mi asolada estructura, he solicitado consejo de algunos que de conocedores se precian. Decenas de observaciones, otras tantas de trucos y advertencias. Regocijo provoca el tener esa ayuda, más queda ese sin sabor de saber que nadie te preguntó si eras feliz, si con esos consejos lo serías. Y es que aunque la felicidad debe provenir de uno mismo, muy pocos te muestran cómo lograr que se repare la fuente. Y, materiales en mano, prosigo con mi anhelo: restaurar la fuente, ser feliz...

I know this is not right.

I know I should not be thinking of that thing.

I know I am a good person, I would not kill anyone or harm anyone.

No. That is not me.

Argh! Too much noise in my head.

These voices.. I hate it!

I need my psychiatrist, I need my psychologist.

Perfect pen pal?
There's no such thing as a perfect being, but I'll describe my perfect pen pal to be a dear friend to me...
That's all I ask for..
Other than that, we could bond over our love for chai, ice skating, Big Bang Theory finale, and lots of non medical school stuff, and any weird hobbies tht you've got..

You've got a friend in me,

Today I narrowed down my search, while looking through the “home buying” apps.

I’ve been able to narrow down the top 3 locations I would want to look into when I finally go to buy a house.

I’m looking at the neighborhood, the crime rate, the schools rating... etc.

Durand, IL, Machesney Park, IL, and Candlewick, IL are just the top 3 I have a couple other locations in mind as well.

I know I want a 4 bedroom, 2-3 bath, a completed basement, and a huge fenced in backyard. I want a two car garage, and a patio/ deck!

I have this image of my house and while I’ve been looking though the for sale apps I’ve gotten a pretty good idea price wise.

2020 is going to be the year I buy my first ho...

A journey of Love.

When your journey began, you were whole.
When love arrived for the first time, happiness came with it.
So much happiness that you couldn’t handle it.
Life became joyous and beautiful.
And then love left one day.
They said,”you’ll find someone better”.
But they didn’t understand one thing.
When you were no longer with someone, you ended up leaving a part of you with them. Something that you’ll never be able to share with someone else.
And in the end, you are not whole.

Back in those cantonment days -
When all those footwear would line themselves up on the make do wooden stand,
I'd pick those long huge boots out,
And try to fit my feet into them.
The fit would evidently be out of place
I'd convince myself though, and keep dragging those huge boots along,
Half believing them to be just right for me - and me for them,
Half wanting to be worthy enough someday to put those on.
Times changed, and I outgrew the person -
I outgrew his shirts which no longer fit,
I outgrew his suggestions which no longer agree -
So I tried his boots on again,
And yet, for some reason, I couldn't outgrow them.
I still can't fill his shoes.
Love sometimes feels like insufficiency.

You are still young to miss the joy of sunrises, the warmth of sunsets, the cuddles of the wind, the kisses of the rain.

You'll get through all the challenges and the pain in every phase.

You are never exhausted not to fly half the world to see, take photos and write about Athens, Jerusalem, the old civilizations from the west or express and exercise your skill in English as you drink tea in the UK or walk the streets of New York.

You'll get there. You'll live the dream you had from your 4th Grade.

Why so broken?

How do the broken ones heal?
Where do they go to find peace?
When will the suffering end?
How do they become whole again?
Is the pain all worth it?
Where do we find the fix?
Is this unquestionable fate of the broken?
What is the point to all of this?
Or is it something pointless

She's a beautiful dreamer with eyes like an angel
A body to die for and a mind just like mine.
She keeps all her thoughts and dreams in a journal
The passion she writes with keeps growing with time.
Sometimes her dreams are playful and vivid
Sometimes her thoughts are scary and dark.
I wish I could be there to help and to heal her
And put back together her sad, broken heart.

If she just lets me in and gives me her trust
I'll hold her together and keep her from breaking.
I've already fallen for her beauty and charm
My mind and my body are hers for the taking.
So my dream girl exists I've finally found her
Scarred and beaten but a spirit unbroken.

Dear people of the world,

We are all butterflies unable to see our own beauty. Only others can truly see it. If people say you are not beautiful they are the caterpillars who do not see the beauty you posses, only your strangeness in how different you are. That does not mean that your beauty is nonexistent, only that they focus on how you are different and not the beauty and color of your wings.

There are three people standing on the top of a mountain. This mountain overlooks humanity and its entirety. They can see time pass, from the cavemen to the astronauts that went to the moon, to the scientist today curing cancer. One of them looks up at the sky and says: "Breathtaking." The only girl of the three tilts her head up too and sighs lightly. She closes her eyes and searches blindly for a hand of the second man. Their hands intertwine and she guides his body closer to her. Finally the last one of the trio aims his eyes at the sky too. There they are, three people, on the top of a mountain, having the possibility to see humanity and its entirety, yet choosing to look at the sky. They...

THE MYSTERY

That air of intimidation blew me over.

The evening grew duskier. My Roman antique clock tick tocked.

The tenor turned cold. My phone kept ringing like one fire alarm. I ignored.

I ran down the staircase, only to be found alone in my home. I panicked.

There was a letter on the diners table. And it read just what happened above. The same lines written down neatly with no signature. I flipped it over. It was plain. Trembled was I.

I opened the door of my store room. The room was organized, like one cleaned up crime scene. But the pungency was hard to ignore.

I blocked my nose and walked further, into the corner of the room. She was there, waiting for me. Lifeless.

Dear letterists

At first when I was very very young, I was told that a home is a building you live in. A building made of bricks and cement and doors and windows.

So I loved mine with all my heart. Decorated the walls and the windows with little drawings and stuff. But then one day, I had to leave that house.

As I grew older, I realised that a house becomes a home because of the people who live in it. The memories they create there. The walls and the windows and the doors become witnesses to those memories as they are created, remembered and relived over the years.

So I decided to make a human being my home. For some time it was wonderful. But I always slept with one eye open. There w...

Dear
people with broken heart & the ones who tend to break,

His Love Is Accumulating Dust On My Heart. It's piling up. He who walks into my life first decides to run his finger over it. It's hell, hopeless & disappointing when the dust sticks to him & he wipes it off. Even my tears are unable to wash it off.

Loneliness creeps in like a black, disgusting devil but I've rose from the grave, dug in the way of underworld. I'm able to battle with him!

You fell asleep while we are on the phone, so I've decided to write you this letter.

I've missed our late night calls, I've missed how crazy and silly we become when we talk alone.

I've missed your sleepy voice and the way you slowly close your eyes before you fall asleep.

I'm greatful and I'm lucky, to be the last voice you hear, and the last face you see, before you beautifully sleep.

The cutest thing ever...

Thank you for being you.

Thank you for being there for me through thick and thin.

Sometimes, those who find love are simply a better judge of character than those who do not. They are able to recognize when someone has unique qualities that sets them apart from everyone else. Other people are unable to distinguish the difference between a high quality partner and somebody who just wants to experience a high off of their company. @PLECCA

too often, i exist in a dream-like state, pictures flooding in because some song on the radio insisted that i hadn’t reminisced in far too long. like, the way hank williams songs remind me of learning to drive a stick shift in the pasture behind my great grandparent’s house. or how when incubus plays i’m taken back to that night in the biting wind when we stood against the stage and sang our hearts out to every song. or like whenever strawberry wine comes on the radio, i suddenly find myself under coral skies, moments falling like petals from dandelions.
memories echo in every line
and i get lost in them every single time

You are pulled into dating those who resemble people you have met in the past because your heart is unconsciously trying to heal the unresolved trauma that lingers within your soul. @PLECCA

Some people lose their identity when they are no longer able to be who they were for you. You will discover how they will always support you when you are down but will abandon you once you get back up and are in a position to provide them with emotional support. @PLECCA

Today I let go. Releasing my grip on your empty heart. No longer will I make excuses for why you weren’t there, why you didn’t care.

Today I let go of the lies that I wanted to believe, my heart said believe, my subconscious said no. I deserve better, someone who will respect me and build me up...not humiliate me and tear me down.

Today I let go of the pain from each time you left to be with him, leaving both me and our children alone. Your selfishness ruling both your life and ours.

Today I let go of the love of my life, my soulmate, my everything. You let go long ago, I was just blind, holding on to memories.

Today I can breathe.

I wrote a poem on freedom it generally entailed the mask I had worn for some time because the fear of knowing me had haunted my spirit n stolen those very moments of freedom that which kept me in bondage from introducing myself to me. When I finally looked into its mirror n saw its reflection of someone n which I never knew but loved what it reflected. I am a person of resilient character n exude a being that is quite befitting of many facades to life...Afterall, it's bondage was just a me talk mechanism n order to keep one stagnant n afraid...But now I am free from its grip of impossibilities....For each day brings a different kinda vibrance n a song n which to sing...Lyric Dream..the queen ...

I woke today with this headache. You know the one that squeezes the bottom of your skull. My muscles in my neck feel so tight it is tender to touch.  Did I sleep much, probably not but I open my eyes. I am alive. I can do this.

I am feeling, breathing, moving. The rain has stopped, the sun is shining, the birds are singing. My mini chihuahua, Choco, yawns as he stretches up to my chest to search for me to pet him. He yawns in my face, Yep, It's time to get up.
I can do this.

The kitchen fan is blowing, it is loud. I can still hear the morning noises so clearly. I put my coffee in the straining cloth pouch and put a pan to boil water. I sit at the kitchen table, I begin to smoke my...

My heart started to ooze out one day,
A toxin of poison and angst.
So I hurried over and begged to know the reason.
She told me she wanted a voice.

I visited my mind and humbly asked,
For partial ownership of the throat.
He clogged it up and vehemently disagreed,
Saying he was saving us from her daily boasts.

"She's a kid, a little toddler!
She has no restraint!" He complained.
"She cries one moment and laughs the next,
Pitiful, impulsive, INSANE!"

I went back to my heart with my head hanging in shame,
From all the hurtful words he had said.
She lifted my chin and whispered to me
To talk to my hands instead.

"I'll grow old with you, we'll die together,
So let's do the best we can."

Tonight, I was preparing
I was finding the right words, the right gestures
I was rehearsing, to be ready for you, today
Listening to the sad song of  birds, singin with me in the rain

Last night I cried, I laughed, I remembered, I sang
I didn't sleep
Too tired and excited to finally fulfill my imagination,
With you

Today, you aren't here
You left me alone, in this huge little room
Filled with my hopes and fears
And I'm hurt,
All the things I prepared, the words I chose, the gestures I decided to make, are fading away
I will burn them all, with the fire of my dreams, with the pain of my hopes, with the rage of my tears

And I'm tired, tired of waiting, tired of preparing every night for ...

No matter how hard I tried,
I always ended up losing you..
I kept you so close to me;
But you still chose to leave.
I spent my savings on you;
But you never gave a heed.
I slept thinking about you last night;
Wanting to keep you safe,
because you were my only one,
My dearest!
But when I woke up , you were gone, Gone like the wind...

I let you keep my sight together, but you still wandered away everytime.
I never let anybody have you..
I treated you like my own baby;
But you were least bothered to hold on to me or my feelings!!

And there will come a day,
When tears have no place here.
And I fear its arrival, for the

Hello there,
I found this hidden gem when I was looking for a writing app or something or other (can't remember exactly) a few months ago then I got busy and stuck in the rat-races of life these days but isn't that the same with everyone. So it sat there on my phone in a folder that I access quite regularly just collecting dust (so to speak), so today I finally  had some downtime so I finally decided to set up an account and give this app a try.

I am not sure how exactly this really works but the way that I think that it works is that its like talking to the moon and stars in the sky above me when I am missing someone I love who has passed away just hoping that I could hear their voice o...

Look around you. Observe the world that you are living in.

Can you feel the beating of a thousand desperate hearts?

Can you see the fear for tomorrow in the looks of people?

Can you hear the cries of a thousand mothers who are losing their children each day?

Now ask yourself, is this the place where you always want to live?

Is this the place where each child expects to grow up when they open their innocent eyes and see the world for the first time?

Are you able to look in the eyes of those children without the feeling of shame for this reality full of evil, which they have to face?

Is this what we have prepared for them throughout centuries and years?

We cannot deny ...

Hi all,
It's unique, kind of weird, but seems like a lot of fun so even I'm writing to you, for the first time, not knowing who you are, or what I'm supposed to talk about.

I think my first letter should be about motivation, as it has been the sole reason of all that I've achieved till date.

I can safely say, every individual, on this earth can achieve more than what he has, do more than what he's doing and can go beyond his capabilities.. with a motivated mind.

Wish you the best.

Dear Lettrs,

I think that my first letter here should be written to you. I came to this website by chance while I was browsing for something else for my friend, but it kept me for quite some time before I've moved on.

Some of the letters here are very emotional and they reach out. Reading these, it reminded me of something my friend said (about diaries, but the meaning is the same): "Do you know why people open their hearts to a piece of paper? Because they cannot confide to other people." Here, after quite some time passed since I've first heard it, I think I finally understand what she meant.

It's too early to say whether I'll be writing here regularly or not, but I think that ther...

Can we, in this life fall in love again.
Can we, in this life be us
Back when butterflies were not only colorful flutters inside but they were messengers delivering pieces of our heart to one another. Days were bright and long, the night air was always warm, we fell in love listening to the sounds of our hearts.   
can we go there with those same butterflies, warm nights and sounds of love again.

Pain.

I wish I could trap this feeling within me and not let it go. I wish I could live it in its entirety, its present intensity, every morning, through the day, into the night and over again. I wish I could start a fire within me and not let it burn out, never, not until it devours the part of me that kills me inside, not until the charred remnants of my inner being clog my breathing, and let each breath be more difficult than the other not until a smokey haze fills my veins and spreads, settles all across me to clench each muscle within my body to remind it of the purge, remind it to exert.

I wish I could crack open an abyss within me, lift the dead weight of my heinous mistakes a...

Como simples mortales en este mundo, buscamos una compañía leal y eterna. Buscamos esas sonrisas en el aire, esas miradas en el cielo, esos "Te Amo" susurrados al oído cunado estamos solos.
Buscamos utopía en un mortal, estamos llenos de deseos mundanos irreales...
El mundo rosa y gris nos llena de pasiones colmadas de insensatez, razones vacías de lógica, nos eufanamos de aquella gloria pasional que nos embelesa con su ironia de "amar".

Dear Lover,

How long has it been? When was our last pizza? When was our last movie? I can't seem to follow how time works.

I miss the way you speak to me. I long for your tired eyes by the lonely night. I've been searching for you in every crowded corners and blinding street lights.

I forgot how to sing the muse that I wrote. I couldn't tell which road I've took yesterday cause I was too happy. I didn't remember what I said when you're sad and I was sober.

Sometimes there's no simpler way to say, "I miss you".

Yours,

His words

Not a memory just yet
As weeks go by
He fades away

Time continues to fly
Fragments yearning to stay
